The Center for Civic Education and James Madison’s Montpelier are partnering to launch the “Constitutional Toolkit,” a six-week free webinar series designed for learners of all ages where experts will explain and discuss key contemporary issues related to the Constitution in a way that is accessible to all Americans.
Beginning on Tuesday, March 16, at 4 p.m., PST, and subsequent Tuesdays through April 20, the Center will feature a special guest to help us dive into a different subject based on your frequently asked questions, followed by a Q&A.
The March 16th session features the Center’s president, Christopher Riano, as guest speaker, and is timed to launch on James Madison’s birthday.
Registration is free, but space is limited. To register: montpelier.org/events/constitutional-toolkit.
March is also Women’s History Month (Womens History Month —civiced.org) a time dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of the women who built this nation, as well as discussing the numerous obstacles that still remain to full equality.
Each day in March, our 60-Second Civics podcast (60-Second Civics - civiced.org) will feature a new episode dedicated to explaining the struggle for equal rights for women and how our
Constitution and laws evolved to make our nation a more representative democracy. Each episode is accompanied by a Daily Civics Quiz, which is a perfect warmup activity for a wide variety of classrooms, from middle school English to high school American Government. Keep your eyes out for some special guest stars as we celebrate women in America!
The Center also offers a wide range of Women’s History Month lesson plans for all grade levels.
Join us in making March a banner month here at the Center, where we are celebrating numerous initiatives designed to ensure a civic and constitutional education for all.
The Center for Civic Education is located at 5115 Douglas Fir Road, Ste J, Calabasas, CA 91302; (818) 591-9321.
